We just renewed our accreditation! Here's what the independent review team had to say.
Accreditation is a process by which an independent team certifies that a school is functioning properly and meets established standards for things like academics, facilities, and governance. It’s important because the team, with no affiliation with the school, provides a thorough analysis of all aspects of a school by reviewing hundreds of artifacts such as budgets, files, curriculum maps, assessments, etc. and conducting stakeholder interviews to determine whether or not the school is fulfilling its moral and legal obligations to students and their families.
The Bible is definitely the foundation of everything that happens at Summit. Students are taught the worldview approach from preschool, and students are well versed in Scripture. Through interviews it was apparent children are continuously building a relationship with Jesus and were overflowing with joy as they spoke about their ability to learn about God throughout all daily instruction and activities.
Individualized instruction helps develop a strong academic and biblical foundation. Engaging instructional practices, play, and exploration mark our program.
What does it mean to offer a college preparatory education?
At Summit, we believe that every child deserves a college-preparatory education. We offer honors courses in middle school and a special class for students performing at or above the 90th percentile to challenge our brightest students.
By individualizing our instruction and working to ensure that every student masters grade level content, we use best practices to address learning gaps or special learning challenges in the regular classroom and as part of our Cultivate program for students with unique learning needs.
We strive to help every student acquire the necessary foundation for a successful life glorifying God and utilizing his/her unique gifts to benefit others.
